Meet Michael Burke

Today we’d like to introduce you to Michael Burke.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Michael. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I am an Animal Communicator, Behavior Consultant, and Intuitive Life Coach.

My mission is to help people better understand and communicate with their animals and overcome behavioral challenges.

I also coach people on how to improve their energy, find balance, clear blocks and achieve their goals. I communicate with animals intuitively in order to answer questions, find solutions and provide people and animals with peace, harmony, confidence and clarity.

During an animal communication session with me, you will receive guidance and support regarding behavior issues, health challenges, emotional obstacles, end of life crossroads and afterlife communication.

My unique approach combines my background as an intuitive with my experience in dog psychology, behavior and training, and energy healing.

I am also an Intuitive Life Coach, offering guidance that will clarify, support and enlighten.

I facilitate clarity and corresponding transformational action by applying the Universal Laws and the Law of Attraction.

My grounded, practical and clear approach assists people with challenges related to life purpose, career, wealth, relationships, and wellness.

I will help you navigate the path ahead, overcome obstacles, develop a healthy lifestyle, find balance, manifest your desires, take action and recognize your own greatness by revealing the best possibilities within your life.

As the youngest of 6 children in a large Irish-Catholic family, I was labeled a highly intuitive “people person with the gift of gab.” I loved openly sharing my feelings, stories, observations, and vibes over Sunday family dinners.

I was also born an “animal person.” For as long as I can remember, animals have gravitated to me. I’ve always felt an ability to connect and communicate with them on a very deep level. While my parents allowed me only two pets (a dog and a ferret), I often bonded and communicated with many animals outside of our home.

I recognized early on that I shared an equally strong bond with people. I embraced the fact that I am a “people magnet” who has consistently served as a trusted confidante….offering guidance and support to those in need. I felt a great responsibility to learn more about my intuition and how I could best serve those who were drawn to me. So I pursued all things spiritual and transformative, yet remained very private about these interests as I did not want to risk being ostracized.

I later began a successful career in the “corporate world” of advertising sales. But I quietly sought out mentors in various modalities of personal development. I took many classes where I learned from the best and acquired various certifications. I meditated a ton and strengthened my intuitive muscles beyond my expectations.

I eventually started working with people one-on-one to bring them clarity, confidence, and peace, and teaching meditation. I soon realized my calling was to work with people and animals at a deeper level, so I left my corporate career to follow my passions and my heart.

Forever a student with a passion for learning, I’ve honed my expertise in many areas including intuition, astrology, health and nutrition, energy work and life coaching.

My love and connection with animals has led me to my work in animal communication, as well as studying dog psychology, behavior and training.

I have combined my vast experience and training to offer a unique perspective and skill-set. I love what I do…..and I love witnessing the transformations of the people and animals I help through my work!

Cooper, my Collie / Shepherd mix, was a big love of my life…and one of my greatest teachers. We spent 15 years of my adult life together, and she still has a profound effect on me. Within days of her passing, a feral cat who adopted me, Mr. Snowbie, also passed away, and he also led me in my expansion on my path of Animal Communication.

Today, I have three dogs – Dasher, a 7-year old Cattle Dog / Aussie Shepherd mix, Atticus, a three years old Australian Shepherd, and Buddy, who also an Aussie and one year old. Our sweet and amazing Pit mix, Harlow, passed away in the Spring of 2019 at nine years old. Harlow continues with us on our journey in spirit and she continues to inspire and surround us with love. I also have three cats – Peanut, a 13 years old tuxedo cat, Lady Snowbie, a Persian who is four years old, and our newly rescued Monty, an 8ish years old Tabby who was abandoned seconds before I discovered him while hiking with my dogs. We all learn, grow and expand each day together. They test my communication skills to make sure I am on point and at my best for all others I serve!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I understand how it feels to struggle because I have faced my own challenges and obstacles and didn’t know where to turn.

I found myself deep in debt not knowing how I would pay my bills or if I would ever dig myself out…..but I succeeded and worked my way to a six-figure income.

I have worked within the “corporate world” and felt unfulfilled….yearning for something more and trying to find my purpose in life…..and I found it.

I have encountered relationship challenges and disappointments that I never thought I would get through….but I got through them all and found happiness.

I have faced creative blocks….lacked inspiration and motivation…and had no clue how to jump-start my engines…..but I discovered a way.

I was at a loss as to how I could feel good, maintain a high level of energy and not always feel irritable.…but I found the keys to my optimum wellness and inner peace.

Meditation has been a huge part of my success in overcoming my challenges. I also implement many techniques that I use in my coaching practice with clients.

In regard to my relationship with animals, I faced behavioral challenges with two reactive dogs and one insecure dog that was also very sensitive. I was nervous about even going out on walks and having anybody come into my home. But through my own personal development, strengthening my ability to stay calm, balanced, and present in the moment, as well as building my intuitive muscles to understand and communicate with animals on a deeper level…..and learning more about dog psychology, behavior, and training….I overcame all of the challenges with my dogs and was able to show them lasting peace, tranquility, and ease.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
The proudest moment of my career has been not one but many…..every time I connect with a person and their animal, I am extremely grateful and proud of the time we share together. I am proud and honored to serve people and their pets, provide guidance and direction, helping them find their calm and overcome challenges, and experience miraculous transformations in their lives. I am so proud to be a bridge of communication and understanding between people and their pets….as well as a bridge and understanding between people and their innermost self that they may have felt disconnected with in the past…the part of themselves that yearns for more in life. I am also so proud of my work in helping people learn meditation when they thought they could never do it, and the experience major transformations for the better because of it…..not only for themselves but also for their animals. Every moment is a new moment to appreciate and I am so proud to recognize the moment, to live in the moment, and to truly appreciate the moment…..whenever I finish a session with a person and their animal, I am so proud to serve them… every day offers me a new moment making me feel proud and grateful.
